Hunting the fallow field and river bank at SP917243 from 1615 to 1635 at least yesterday, Sunday 20th. View from the green bench on Black Bridge Path (the former railway line, now a shared use path) close to the bridge over the river and canal. The bird mainly hunted the flood meadow looking toward All Saints but also perched up in trees above the river towards Tiddenfoot Waterside Park.
